And, she's off.

My *baby* girl left to have a surgery and I am not there with her. Feels a little strange, but I thought it was the best option to send Bob with Jayla for the sake of Clover. I couldn't be fully present for Jayla while attending to Clover at the hospital, and I could not leave Bob to take care of the nursing baby who won't take a bottle all day. Jayla adores her daddy, so she is unphased. It's my heartstrings that are tugged.
So, I am showing my love the next best way: by shopping for her. The boys and baby and I are going out to buy J a couple of little "welcome home" and "have a speedy recovery" items. You might know, shopping is one of my least favorite activities, and I will be taking 4 kids with me, so I feel that this is a true demonstration of my devotion to my dear eldest daughter, in spite of the fact that I could not be with her today.

Here is her midnight breakfast since she could not eat or drink this morning. She chose Grapenuts and oj.

I love you so much sweet girl Jayla. I am missing you today and can't wait to spend some 'recovery' time hanging out with you watching Little House on the Prarie, playing Junior Scrabble and polishing our nails.
